Reviews (cont’d)

Today’s Harvard Business School “Working Knowledge” includes a review by Sean Silverthorne of Bigger Isn’t Always Better .

He got my main point about growth when he commented that:

"Both drive and balance belong in any executive's skill set, and this book is a useful counterpoint to those who favor the steroids approach to business."

I’m honored Harvard reviewed the book. It’s also a little ironic. Their publishing arm has put out books hailing the management practices of Enron, and more recently Hardball. This is an approach to competition that is macho-on-the-outside/brittle-and-unsustainable-within. It’s one that my book warns against.
